About HvC

We have been putting the crown on your packaging for over 150 years

The beginnings

Company founded by Hubert von Carnap in Cologne: cardboard trade and paper cutting shop in the inner city on the Hunnenrücken. The production of dangerous goods packaging made of leather cardboard by hand is in the foreground of the production.

Shortly before the death of the company founder, Siegmund von Carnap takes over the company.

The post war period

The businessman Theodor Zimmermann joins the bombed-out company as a general partner. He succeeds in reactivating the old customer connections. Just a short time later you are able to invest in the first machines again.

A hand cardboard factory is taken over in the Altmühltal and modernized and expanded as the Schellneck paper factory. In the 1970s it was announced that the Schellneck paper factory would have to close to make room for the expansion of the Ludwig Canal.

The extension

A branch is opened in Windeck an der Sieg, as it is not possible to expand production in the center of Cologne.

After the death of Theodor Zimmermann, Doris Eichler- Zimmermann and Peter Eichler took over the management together.


The quality assurance system, which has grown over many years of producing dangerous goods packaging, is certified by TÜV Rheinland in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001.

The new 5-color printing machine increases capacity and quality.
